Clark makes the case for Obama

Brent Finnegan -- October 22nd, 2008

The one name Wesley Clark never mentioned during his visit to Harrisonburg tonight: McCain. The alternative energy expert, economist, and retired four-star general instead spent his time criticizing Bush’s foreign and domestic policies, and pronouncing his faith in Obama.

Court Square Theater was packed to capacity (250+ supporters). Staff scrambled to find extra seating in the minutes before Clark’s appearance.

    It was fantastic. The number of people there gave me some real hope.

    PLEASE ! Before you consider voting for Obama, please understand the importance of what Joe Biden was talking about when he spoke of being challenged when taking over office. There is a program running in the Military Channel titled “Weapons Races: The Race for the Nuclear Bomb” and at the 40 minute mark it explains the challenge Russia bluff that all most cost us everything.

    this is not a push for McCain, just a hope that you know what he is talking about and how important it is.

    Whatever. Fear won’t win the right’s race for the highest office. I refuse your argument once and for all. After the drum beat to Iraq, Bailouts, and every other sleazy tactic of the last eight years I refuse to buy these arguments any longer.

    Older Hburger,

    You’re right. A lot of us have thought about the implication of what Biden said. And we don’t think a man of John McCain’s erratic temperament is up to the challenge. Thanks for pointing that out.

  5. Brian M says:

    I think Older HBurger has a valid point. We all must weigh the different qualities and challenges that will be presented to our next President when he takes office. National Defense is one of those challenges. Of course, most Americans are more concerned with economy and health care at the moment.

    It seems to me that most contributors of hburgnews have researched the candidates and made an informed decision. The more educated a voter is, the better off our Nation will be. This is certainly a very emotional election for each of us. My emotions send me towards a specific candidate and it is up to me to justify to myself who I choose to vote for.

    If everyone researched, as best as possible, each candidate (including third parties) then no matter who won the race, the Country would win.
